    Ok, About 2 or 3 months ago, I switched to Mozilla, (not firefox) just Mozilla.
    I have favotites on IE. and bookmarks on Mozilla. Now just a few minutes ago, IE decided to send all those favorites to my Mozilla without permission.
    The bookmarks on Mozilla are important ones, and they are gone now, replaced with IE's. This happened to me one other time around a month ago. And somehow I got the old Mozilla bookmarks back that I want. (I think I re-installed Mozilla,or did a restore, I'm not sure) I have Windows XP.
    How can I get the bookmarks back?
    How can I STOP IE from thinking it can take over like that? LOL
    I checked and Mozilla IS my default browser.
    also, all my cookies are cleared or something, because I am having to sign in everywhere I go.

    Make a file in My Documents called FireFox Bookmarks, open FireFox, bookmarks, export, and send your bookmarks to the file you made in My Documents.
    Repeat as you add bookmarks. Import the bookmarks back to FireFox is you lose them. You can also save those bookmarks to a USB drive as needed.
    I'm not sure why you are losing your bookmarks.

    Mozilla is the same. Just look under bookmarks on the menu at the top of the page.

    Well, I would show you with a pic, but I can't keep the dropdown open for the pic.
    Under bookmarks there is:::
    Bookmark this page
    File Bookmark
    Bookmark this group of tabs
    Manage bookmarks
    Personal toolbar folder<-- this one has "flyoff side" menu but no export.
    (only my bookmarks)

    Go back
    Tiffanys bookmarks<--only my daughters bookmarks
    Fairy anime doll maker

    None of the rest have a "side" menu
    Also I have checked all my other folders at the top menus, and I don't see export. I know there has to be an export somewhere, LOL
    Thank you soooo much for your help ronjor. :)

    Personal toolbar folder
    Go back and Tiffanys bookmarks.
